Poor charging from magsafe connector
The magsafe connector on the original charger packed up and stopped charging the battery. It was definitely fault at the plug end but a spare charger from a dead laptop using the 60W worked. Replaced charger with new one with the offset plug.This stopped working when placed so that the USB ports were not blocked and had to be used in the other orientation..
Currently the green LED turns orange but the energy indicator shows a plug icon and flickers between the battery icon. As unit gets older more and more fiddling to get a solid connection is needed to show the lightning bolt (charging) icon. Once charge gets up to 100% LED turns green but I can only sure of charging while laptop is open
How to tell if I need to replace DC in board or go for yet another charger?
Is this a good question?
